The Errant Stage is hosted in a big red converted 2006 Iveco Luton van. In it’s previous life the van was owned by Kilter Theatre who toured their immersive show ‘The Last Post’ in it for four years.Kate fell in love with the van almost immediately and as the fates would have it, in January 2017 she jumped on the chance to buy the Luton, and set into motion the team’s vision.
Check out Kate’s early conversion videos to see how she got on with fibreglassing in freezing February, how the space has transformed on the inside and for continuous updates on the conversion process.The space can host an intimate and enclosed audience of up to 20 people, whilst maintaining a decent 10 x 4 ft performance space, or she can open her doors, double the performing area and have a large open audience area on the ground outside.
